Child Care and Development Fund: Provider Compliance with State Criminal Background Check Requirements
Reauthorized in the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 (CCDBG Act), the Child Care and Development Fund is the primary source of Federal subsidies of childcare costs to low-income families. All licensed, regulated, and registered childcare providers, as well as all childcare providers eligible to deliver childcare services, are subject to the CCDBG Act's requirements for criminal background checks. The CCDBG Act mandates that a State have policies and procedures in place that meet the criminal background check requirements. To determine whether the States' monitoring process has ensured compliance by childcare providers with States' requirements for criminal background checks established under the CCDBG Act, we will assess provider compliance with the criminal background record check requirements that have been established by each State.
